Re: !999 Daewoo Lanos
Try getting a chilton's repair manual for your particular car. if you have never done a timing belt before, don't attempt as you can cause severe engine damage if you don't time it correctly, and then try starting it....ie bent valves... costly repairs.

The camshaft sprockets have an indention on them you will align them to the inside horizontally so they are side by side. The crankshaft sproket also has a timing mark on it and you will align that with the timing mark on the rear timing belt cover vertically. The tensioner aligns with with the notch on the automatic tensioner bracket. Hope this helps you.
I have a 2001 Lanos and I've replaced my belt twice (after breaking the first one at speed and having to replace the engine). The two cam gears have timing marks that should point towards each other. If you hold a ruler up with the edge of it passing through the center of the cam shaft bolts, the timing marks on each cam should be lined up on with the edge of the ruler and pointing towards each other. The crankshaft gear (not the big pulley) has a small triangle timing mark on it that should point almost straight down. There is a V cut into the oil pan that actually should line up with the cranshaft timing mark. BE VERY CAREFUL because if you rotate the crankshaft independently of the cams, you can tear up the valves very quickly.
